From time to time we will offer discounts and promotions in the form of discount codes. Promotional discounts are limited to one per customer unless otherwise stated and valid only for the time period indicated. Only one discount code per transaction may be used.

If the discount code is for a flat fee or set percentage of the value of an order over a specified amount, where multiple products are ordered, if any of the items are thus returned to bring the total value of the order down below the specified amount, you will receive a refund from us of the full price minus the amount of discount that has been applied to the other products.
